West Terrace Cemetery in Park 23 is Adelaide's oldest. It also includes Australia's first military cemetery.  

The Wirraninthi Environmental Education Trail was developed in 2015 by a team of four people participating in a 'Community Leaders' program.  It assists walkers to look around, explore, investigate and use your imagination. 

The trail features a number of bronze animal statues by accalimed sculptor Silvio Apponyi
